This source is the same as the historic recordings of the Grateful Dead on the same dates (08-05-71 & 08-06-71), and is considered among some of the very best live audience recordings of the early 1970's. There are no soundboard recordings circulating for these shows. A particularly good show, 08-06-71 features some fantastic slide work from Jerry Garcia. He roars and he soars. The band is firing on all cylinders.

A first SHN set of this recording was made in January, 2002. Recently (Nov. 2003), the missing Honky Tonk Women was found and added to the set. It was taken from an AUDMR>?>R source. Cross faded in at 03:22 of d2t09 (Sweet Lovin' One).

John Dawson - rhythm guitar, vocals
David Nelson - lead guitar, vocals
David Torbert - bass, vocals
Jerry Garcia - pedal steel guitar
Spencer Dryden - drums

Delightful performance from the band, four stars here instead of five due to the scant vocals that are quite hard to hear on the first couple of tracks; it picks up but never really evens out. Still, an essential companion piece to your 8/6/71 Dead aud.

This is marvellous! Jerry's steel work is so good, he just never stops with the fills and some wonderful solo's which bring audience applause. McDuke's vocals on 'The Weight' are sheer bliss.

Download it and burn it and play it regularly!

Put on this show over dinner nad my wife informed that John Dawson had died. Condolences and best wishes to all. May the four winds blow you safely home.

Subject: A Fond Place In My Heart
This show has a permanent fond place in my heart. It was my 17th birthday and I was way jazzed to be spending it with two of my favorite bands. What can I say? I had a great time! The recording is kind of a milestone too. It's one of the first truly "good" audience recordings and set the stage for many other tapers to raise the bar on their technical expertise and the gear they were using. Before this, the only really good recordings were from the board. The fact that Garcia is playing pedal steel with NRPS is a real plus here as well. I got to work with this configuration of the band a couple times as an LD.

Thanks a million for making this available! As I sit here almost 38 years later, the night is still (well, kinda') fresh in my mind. I think we went to Santa Monica and slept off the sparklies on the beach for awhile before heading home.

First heard the New Riders from their 28April1971 opening slot for the Dead. Workingman's Blues, Daddy add as nice additions to the Dead's electric set played after this performance.
